Merry Christmas!

The Centennial Valley home of Brent and Ashley Salter lends a modern flair to an indoor winter wonderland. Ashley, who does her own decorating, has used the homes neutral color palette, clean and modern design influence, and natural elements to create a Christmas style that is “modern and over-the-top.” Her overall color scheme throughout the main rooms of the home include silver, white and turquoise. The home also features a pink tree in the guest room with a dog theme, and the game room features a Razorback themed tree.

By her own admission, Ashley Salter does Christmas in a big way! The Centennial Valley resident is married to Brent, and the two are parents to daughter, Sutton. Her goals for her Christmas décor are seamless incorporation with the theme of her home and to ensure each room is festive in some way.

Conway resident Tina Falkner is bringing quirky to Christmas in the form of vintage wreaths!
Tina has a wonderfully full plate. She has been happily married for 14 years and is mom to three amazing and energetic children, all under age 10. She began creating the wreaths, which feature vintage ornaments, around four years ago. “In the late 90s I was in Mississippi with my sister, helping care for her twins. I went into a store there and saw the most gorgeous wreath made with vintage Christmas ornaments,” shares Tina. She filed it away in her memory because she loved the idea.

Anna Dickinson of White Goat in Downtown Conway attributes her success to a unique sense of style.
About four years ago, she started the store’s first location in The Heights in Little Rock with her sister-in-law, Eleanor Dickinson. The two had always shared a similar style in furniture and décor. They imported a selection of expensive Swedish and French furniture, and within a few months of opening, they realized their first plan was not going to work.

Tickled Pink boutique in downtown Conway is all about offering a Southern hospitality experience, says owner Stacy Vondran.
A nurse for 16 years, running a boutique was a big career change for Vondran, but one she had thought about for quite a while. She purchased the shop in April.

Downtown Conway Mistletoe Madness
“Mistletoe Madness” is a one stop Christmas shopping extravaganza. Downtown offers it all: art, jewelry, home decor, clothing, toys, foods and more. Saturday, December 13 kicks-off the “12 Days til Christmas” countdown. Merchants welcome shoppers with holiday incentives that you will not want to miss. Downtown Conway boosts over 40 local merchants that will be participating in this event.

I absolutely LOVE the holiday season. For as long as I can remember I have waited anxiously for Thanksgiving break to arrive so I could pull out the family Christmas tree, string the garland on the mantle, and turn the radio to non-stop carols. But as much as I love those traditions, my truly favorite part of Christmas has always been trying to find the perfect gifts for my family and friends.

How did you get started
making jewelry?
I’ve been making jewelry for fun since I was 12 years old. I started seriously designing jewelry about 3 years ago. I couldn’t find any jewelry that felt like “me” so I just made it myself!

What type of products do
you make?
I make hand-stamped pieces, post earrings, bracelets and necklaces. I have recently started making jewelry dishes and knit scarves, as well as headbands for children. I also take custom orders for individuals and for large events.

What are you working
on right now?

Please check out the event website for more information and pricing.
